UK singer-songwriter Tanya Lacey is hurting ‘em with her versatility; from the dubby soul tune “Born To Fly” to the radio ready R&B of “Letter To My Ex,” and now some rap flexing on the danceable “T.H.E. (The Hardest Ever)” – Tanya is not playing any games.

As Tanya mentions in the video above, what’s special about “T.H.E.” is that she initially co-wrote it with Dallas Austin who then played it for the famed Will.I.Am. Sir Will liked it so much, that he threw Jennifer Lopez and Mick Jagger on the track and made it the lead single from his upcoming album, #willpower.

Tanya speaks on the track:

“This song is about me expressing some of the frustrations and ongoing conflicts you tend to experience as an artist in the industry. It’s about having a vision and overcoming obstacles through willpower and persistence.” She continues, “I’m an all or nothing kind of person so ‘go hard or go home’ pretty much sums up my attitude to my career and life in general.”

This past December, the UK got a little treat called Tanya Lacey a la the double A-side single “Letter To My Ex” and “Born To Fly,” both super addictive tracks that we are so stoked to get our hands on.

The single shows Lacey moving adeptly between different styles, with “Born To Fly” carrying a dub heavy edge that’s sure to reach past the mainstream, and “Letter To My Ex” cementing her as a worthy peer to any of today’s R&B divas.

Each video is also equally unique, with a cool cinemagraph traversing Stokes Croft, Bristol in the “Born To Fly” video, and clean modern visuals featuring a stunning Tanya for “Letter To My Ex.”

Watch out for this lady – she’s going to be making moves!
